blog I wanted to focus on the National Breast Cancer Awareness
Month (NBCAM) which is a collaboration of national public service
organizations, professional medical associations, and government
agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share
information on the disease, and provide greater access to
NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast
cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on
breast cancer. NBCAM recognizes that, although many great strides
have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there
remains much to be accomplished. They remain dedicated to educating
and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health.
Although October is designated as National Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, NBCAM is dedicated to raising awareness and
educating individuals about breast cancer throughout the
year. In July, my neighbor passed away from breast cancer and
I would like to honor her and many women who are survivors and
fighters of breast cancer.
Please encourage you patients, friends and family about yearly
mammograms and self-breast examination. I will be showing my
support by wearing the pink ribbon this month. There is also a
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of DuPage County on Sunday
October 20, 2013, at Cantigny Park, 1S151 Winfield Road, Wheaton,
IL. There are pamphlets about the 5k fundraising walk are available
at the LRC front desk. This is a great cause and students can
receive off-campus hours.
